Kexi for Windows

Tue Feb 12, 2013 10:58 pm
Hi,
This may be interesting for those of you dreaming of full Kexi on Windows to be available sooner than later - Kexi project is looking for donation: at least one legal license for Windows 7 Pro 32-bit (English).

VMware and Visual Studio software will be used to prepare and maintain Kexi for Windows (XP and newer).

Thanks in advance.


Best regards,

Hi, are you still looking for "at least one legal license for Windows 7 Pro 32-bit (English)."? or any other windows versions as I may be able to help you with this. I have several computers, which had a variety of windows versions when bought but i have since upgraded many of them to later windows versions. So i am more than willing to let you have the license numbers for these versions...

All the best...Paul

How is this going? By the looks of it, you received a Windows license in 2013. Also, someone was asking whether there is an old version.
If I don't hear from you, I'll make an attempt to compile it myself.

Hi asbach, jorgk3 and Tralen!
Update. I am actually collecting funds to make sure this version is maintained.
The virtual machine barely works (but works thanks to the donated Windows license). A native workstation is a must long term. Guess what - these workstations are not free in stores around :)
Having it just for Windows makes sense or not but people that will work on the Windows version have to see a strong reason for this purchase.
This is a reason #1 why the development takes time.

Reason #2: Kexi is going through some restructuring for Qt 5: https://community.kde.org/Kexi/Porting_to_Qt%26KF_5
A big question is if we want a Qt 4 port on Windows or waiting for the Qt 5 version.
It's not possible to just take the resources out of the Qt 5 port and put them on the 'Windows port' task. Resources have to be _added_ this or another way.

The Windows version will eventually rock, enjoying a native installer (like Krita for Windows https://krita.org/download/krita-desktop/) with online updates and will be a fairy compact app, without you noticing it's most known from the KDE Plasma desktop.

PS: Support is now possible since a month: for example 4 days left for the #Kexi fundraiser: https://www.bountysource.com/teams/kexi/fundraiser
There are also other issues that can be supported https://www.bountysource.com/teams/kexi/issues. Anyone can add own wish, including the "Add Windows version" on Github and publish on Bountysource.
